Eachtrai Mara Phaidi Pheadair as Toraigh

Although Tory Island, a small island off the north coast of Ireland, has been a stronghold of the Irish language for centuries, the island has no literary tradition. Therefore, this recently discovered manuscript, written over 100 years ago, is a major literary find. Written by Seamus Mac a’ Bhaird in a rich Tory dialect that no longer survives, the novel is a story full of travel and adventure.
